Drama Desk nominee Jennifer Simard joins the cast of James Wesley's Unbroken Circle beginning Aug. 7 at Off-Broadway's St. Luke’s Theatre.
Simard steps into the role of Edna, which was created by Anika Larsen. Simard has been seen on Broadway in 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Shrek The Musical.
With direction by Jason St. Little, the cast also features Stacey Bone-Gleason, Lori Hammel, Suzanna Hay, Eve Plumb, playwright Wesley and Juli Wesley.
Set in 1970 Galveston, TX, "a family is brought together for the first time in years on the day of its patriarch's funeral," according to press notes. "As the day turns into night, the man's impact on his family unfolds in unexpected and surprising ways. Unbroken Circle is at turns hilarious and disturbing and explores how abuse and family secrets affect every person in each generation differently."
The creative team includes Josh Iacovelli (set and lighting design), Brian Hemesath (costume design), Karen Evanouskas (production stage manager) and Dan Adamsky (sound design).
Show times are Wednesday at 2:30 PM and 8 PM, Thursday at 7 PM and Sunday at 1:30 PM.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
